Professional practices Terhi Nurminen endorses's Professional Guidelines.

I offer high-quality English>Finnish translation, proofreading and editing services.

I have worked as a full-time freelance translator since 2012, and my specialist fields are technical translations, IT and software, marketing and corporate communications. I am also happy to do general translations. My recent projects include user manuals for industrial machinery, household appliances and medical devices, UI texts for mobile apps and games, brochures, MSDS sheets and technical specifications (please see my CV for details). I own and use both SDL Trados Studio and memoQ, and I am also happy to use other CAT tools when required.

I am a UK-based native speaker of Finnish, and I have Bachelor's and Master's degrees in English philology from the University of Tampere in Finland, as well as a PhD with studies in linguistics and English language from Newcastle University in the United Kingdom. During my time at Newcastle University, I also worked as a teaching assistant, teaching introductory linguistics to first-year undergraduate students, and contributed to the editing of the Newcastle Working Papers in Linguistics.
